Long night.

Olivia is still having bleeding issues. She started another nosebleed yesterday in the morning so she went over to MDH for a CBC. Her platelets were 33,000. I called St. Jude and the doctor said that was reasonable for her but to keep him posted.
So, by last night she sprung another leak and wouldn't stop, so I took her over to MDH about 11:30 pm in hopes of getting platelets in Macomb. No go. So we left there about 1:30 and got to Peoria about 3:00 and are getting platelets. When we got here, her oxygen sats were only 75, so she is on quite a bit more oxygen than at home. This is mostly due to the fact that she wasn't getting any oxygen through her nose, because it is so clogged with blood clots. Pleasant, I know. There also seems to be a discrepancy with her Lovenox. Hopefully, we can get this all figured out and be on our way home by this afternoon. Keep you posted...
